Marketing Text In the summer months July and August 2010 and 2011 totally 30 pupils of the schools of the Vocational Training Institute Vienna (bfi Wien) took part in three weeks' workplacements in companies in Bratislava, Brno, Hodonin, Budapest, Györ, Székesfehérvár and Pleven. With this project we wanted to contribute during the initial training phase to the abilities and competencies and employment prospects of our pupils in the European employment market. The pupils will get preparatory language and pedagocial courses.
In the three weeks' placements in the neighbouring eastern countries in companies in Bratislava, Brno, Hodonin, Budapest, Györ, Székesfehérvár and Pleven pupils of the third to fith class of the business college of the bfi Wien schools took part. This project is based on a transnational cooperation between schools in Vienna and schools in the neighbouring eastern countries lasting for many years. Our target group was given the possibility to gather experience within the framework of practical vocational training in foreign companies.
Criteria for the participants of this project were learning success and the practical qualification, the interest of the pupils as well as the social and intercultural competences.
We used the valid Europass Mobility Certificate for all participating pupils within this project (valid since 01/01/2005). After their stay abroad feedback of the companies was collected and in a final workshop the overall evaluation and recognition was ensured.
